Former national Security Minister, Jack Warner

Former national Security Minister, Jack Warner says he knows nothing of any security arrangement that would see the children of the

Attorney General being offered training in firearm use by the Trinidad and Tobago regiment.

Speaking in a televised interview this morning, Mr. Warner said this may be a new development.

He said he is concerned however about the legality of such a privilege.

Meanwhile, the T&T Defence Force last night confirmed that the AG and his family had in fact been invited to Camp Cumuto for

training. In a media statement, signed by senior public affairs officer Major Al Alexander, the regiment said the Defence Force

“traditionally provides close protection to national strategic leaders.”

It went on to state : “As part of this process, several considerations are taken into account, inclusive of exposing the principal and

his/her family to scenarios that may be encountered during the time that the principal is in office.”

The statement said details of the type of training could not be given for security reasons.
